    If you put 6 McCoy 35 engines on that B-36 you would never be able to hold on to it. I know this, I built 3 of them starting with the first one that cost all of $14.95 in 1964

    I still have a NIB TT 18. Probably will get another 28. If your going to build a C/L twin you don't need high horsepower but the ability to generate thrust at a more sedate top end is really useful.

    It is usually better to have the plan put on a disc and sent. Then the person receiving the disc can go and have a set printed at his local printing place. Much cheaper all around.
